The Faculty supports almost 700 members, Fellows and Associates across the Republic of Ireland.
We rely on members to play an active role locally, promoting the College aims and objectives. It is essential to raise and maintain awareness of demographic issues and needs of GPs and patients alike, and develop initiatives to support these.
If you would like to find out more about becoming involved with the faculty we would be delighted to hear from you.
Board meetings are held regularly throughout the year. If you would like an item to be considered at a future meeting, please contact us on the details below.
The Faculty hosts their annual winter meeting on the first Friday in December each year. This event consists of a lecture from a guest speaker, presentations and prize giving.
As well as the winter meeting the faculty also hosts a spring meeting in March and their AGM in May.
Awards and Prizes
RCGP Travel Bursary is open to either a current registrar with an Irish training scheme or a graduate of an Irish training scheme within 5 years of graduation.
